I'd go back to 1970 and watch Steve Mizerak winning his first of four consecutive US Open 14.1 titles.

I'd also like to go back to the 1930's and watch Ralph Greenleaf playing in his prime.

Agreed 100%. These will be the most important events, and consequently, biggest titles in our game, eclipsing the clear number 3, the China Open.

Corey's break is still a little bit above average by men's standards. Both Han Yu and Siming Chen have very weak breaks by men's standards. They are, no doubt, extremely elite players who have...

Wow, tough question. Personally, I love Fargo, but it has one seriously glaring weakness and that is the overweighting of matches played more than a year ago.

Yes, that's 100% correct.

Murphy's name was Cisero, not Cicero. Actually, Cicero was a famous Roman orator in the days of Julius Caesar.
